Joseph Nassise shook up the urban fantasy genre with Eyes to See, a novel New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry called "heartbreaking, deeply insightful, powerful and genuinely thrilling."
In a devil’s deal, Jeremiah Hunt sacrificed his human sight in exchange for the power to see the hidden world of ghosts and all of the darker spirits that prowl the streets. Hunt uncovered a world of murder and magic that took his daughter from him and nearly cost him his life, but that was only the beginning....
Now Hunt is on the run from the FBI, who have pegged him as a mass-murdering dark sorcerer. His flight from the law is diverted to New Orleans when his companion, a potent witch, has a horrific vision of the city under magical siege. When they arrive, they realize that the situation is more dire than they could have imagined: the world of the living faces a terrifying attack by forces from beyond the grave. King of the Dead, the second book in this groundbreaking series, promises more of Nassise’s electrifying writing that will enthrall listeners looking for a supercharged, supernatural thrill.

Critic reviews

"[A] rich, exciting, emotionally resonant blend of horror, thriller, and fantasy." (Booklist, starred review)
"A great read and unlike almost anything else I’ve read in urban fantasy: It’s hard-boiled and dark, as if Cornell Woolrich had written an urban fantasy. Definitely its own beast. Damn, this man can write!" (Kat Richardson, best-selling author of the Greywalker paranormal mysteries)
"I couldn’t stop reading. It’s full of supernatural creepiness that will have you leaving the lights on when you go to sleep." (Carrie Vaughn, New York Times best-selling author of the Kitty series)

Good Sequel

I absolutely loved the first part of The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle, and although the sequel is not quite as good as the first part or the series, it does a reasonable job of keeping you interested.

King of the Dead

I was pleasantly surprised by this listen. I had poor expectations coming into it and I felt this turned out better than the first book in the series. The previous story seemed a little too much of a copy of Dresden but not done as well. But I enjoyed the characters for the most part. It would be better if the protagonist had more active abilities other than ghost sight. Having his friends out show him while he curls up in a ball most fights is disappointing. But at the very end we get a taste of what he may be capable in the future which is promising.
